The Golf Driving Range lighting at the HQ of the Golf Union of Ireland at Maynooth, Co Kildare is a state-of-the-art facility. Part of the Carton House Hotel & Sports complex, the centre is used by National and International Sportsmen such as Chelsea or Real Madrid Football Clubs, Irish or Leinster Rugby Team etc. (see website). The Golf Range is to international standard.
The illumination for this Project consisted of a mixture of 2 Floodlight types with high vertical light levels, even at a distance of 250m. White light was required to highlight the ball. Luminaires were modified to install neatly to the Building and both Luminaire and Poles were supplied in a special RAL finish. Consultant Engineers were PMC.
The lighting for Golf Ranges usually is located behind the Golfers to provide the highest light level on the surface of the Golf ball that is nearest the Golfer. There are 2 Floodlights shown on the lighting column below – one to illuminate the it Ball as it climbs high initially and the second Floodlighting for illuminating the ball as it travels in excess of 200m away. A solid curtain of trees is useful as a backdrop to provide background contrast to the colour of the golf ball, as well as to prevent light spill or glare outside the Golf range site.
Other Golf Driving Range lighting Projects supplied include Tramore, Co Waterford; Newry, Co Armagh; Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Galway; etc.
